80 pin SCSI drive on a desktop pc?
Posted on 2004-03-22
I am new to the world of scsi and would like to install two 80 pin scsi drives in my pc. These models are compaq 36.4gb 10K. I believe they are UW3 with Lvd. The model no. is either BD0366349C or 176496-B22. Basically I would like to put the operating system on one of them so I realise that I need a bootable scsi card. However, all the cards that I see seem to have 68 pins and not 80. Is it possible to use the drives in a home pc or will they only work in a server environment? If they will work what cards are recommended? Can they work with an Lvd SCSI uw2 card? and finally... I have absolutely no idea how to install and set them up, can somebody please help! (They will be used in either a win2000 or XP system).
